On October 19-20, 2020, at the Artificial Intelligence Department, online meetings of the section “Modern Problems of Computational and Artificial Intelligence” were held. This section is an integral part of the conference “Intelligent Information Systems” and the XXIV Youth Forum “Radio Electronics and Youth in the XXI century.” One of the participants represented the reports related to the development and use of new architectures of deep neural networks for solving applied problems. That was distinct. It is pleasant to note that the students of the AI department studying in the junior courses also take part in our Forum with reports, using the knowledge gained in discrete mathematics and other modules to the presentations.
We thank all the participants and wish them new creative success and health!
Due to enhanced anti-epidemic measures as coronavirus infection COVID-19 spreads over Ukraine, the XXIV Youth Forum “Electronics and Youth in the XXI century” will be held online on October 19-21, 2020. As the track of the Forum, the Department of Artificial Intelligence organises a meeting of section #1 “Modern problems of Computational and Artificial Intelligence”, conference #6 “Intelligent Information Systems”.
This academic year, the cohort of students of the Artificial Intelligence Department, who study in the speciality 122 – Computer Science, “Artificial Intelligence” program, were replenished with five groups at once. This very joyful event means that we are not afraid of any coronavirus.
At the AI department, meetings of academic groups curators with their freshmen were held last week. Students officially have got their student ID cards. The curators also familiarized their students with the organization of the educational process and compliance with restrictions during the quarantine (COVID-19); told about the assessment system and types of semester exams; provided clarifications on scholarships and regulations, and the use of Google corporate services.
Newly arrived students are full of desire to study, and we, for our part, will do our best to make the learning process (albeit distantly) as interesting and useful for the children as possible.
Congratulations to our freshmen and wish them health and excellent academic success!
The last academic year 2019-2020 turned out to be complicated: many had to, as they say, “on the fly” readjust to distance learning. But for the students of our department, the participants of the French project, it was precisely this mode of study that was initially planned. For the Department of Artificial Intelligence, this project has already become traditional. It is carried out within the framework of the Agreement on Cooperation on a joint training program in a virtual environment (development of business projects in the field of information technology) between the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics and the Higher School of Engineering (ECAM-EPMI Graduate School of Engineering), Cergy-Pontoise, France. The goal of the project is to continue the joint training program in the field of information technology for Ukrainian and French students. In the 2019-2020 academic year, the EVV program was held through joint seminars during March-April 2020 via videoconferences and through the Moodle course management system. The language of instruction and communication is English. During the implementation of the project and at the final defence, our students demonstrated a broad outlook and professional knowledge in the field of modern information technology, a right level of English proficiency, a willingness to present, defend and commercialize their projects in the field of intelligent information technology.
Following the completion of the project, the head of the department of AI Prof. Filatov V.A. congratulated all the students, participants of the French project, with excellent results, and the vice-rector for innovative corporate work and administration prof. V.V. Rossikhin solemnly presented the Certificates signed by the rectors of the two partner universities and wished them further creative and professional success, as well as good health!
We open the call to study on ICT programme (code 067 according to UNESCO international standard – ISCED) during one semester (Spring) for 2020 – 2021 academic year within Erasmus+ academic mobility project with Spanish University of Jaén (UJA). To participate in the competition students should send CV and motivation letter until September 30, 2020 to the e-mail address:
The AI Dep team will collaborate with colleagues from Universities and IT companies of Finland, United Kingdom, Portugal, China and Ukraine within project «Deep Intelligent Optical and Radio Communication Networks» aims at transnational and intersectoral staff exchange focused on optical and radio network traffic optimization using AI techniques especially neural network based approaches.
In addition to the mobility project with the Spanish University of Jaen (https://www.ujaen.es/en) which has been implementing since 2018, the department has received two new partners for the realizing academic mobility of students and teachers according to the results of the Erasmus+ KA107 Call:
The defences of the master students at the Artificial Intelligence Department, who studied on the educational and scientific program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” (speciality 122 – Computer Science) has ended.
The last day of defence was notable for the fact that the rector, professor Valery Semenets connected to us for a video conference of the examination board meeting. He listened to some of the presentations, took part in an online discussion, and even asked a few questions to defenders. We hope he was engaged in the same way as us. Almost all topics of master’s theses are practical and contemporary. The presented works were devoted to the research both fields of cognitive and computational intelligence. The results of studies on the application of various types of deep neural networks for solving applied problems, including natural language processing, image recognition, and even game development, were presented. The students researched the modelling of scaleless networks, studied their properties and practical implementation in the form of both professionally-oriented and social networks. There were also works in which the approaches of cognitive and evolutionary modelling applied to the development of intelligent decision support systems in poorly structured situations. Summing up, students are not afraid to undertake complex but exciting projects for them required pre-processing of a large amount of data and even full-scale experiments.
We wish our Masters new interesting creative tasks, health and success!
We met the second day of defences of the master students at the Artificial Intelligence Department, who studied on the educational and scientific program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” (speciality 122 – Computer Science). It was not as saturated as the first day. Still, we delighted to see together with the masters of full-time education, the defences of the correspondence-distance education master students. Of course, it was more difficult for part-time students to cope with the subjects of our department, because of many basic disciplines relating to mathematical foundations and especially intelligent information technologies we deliver to our students at the undergraduate level. But still, everything worked out well and perfect.
The spectre of themes includes the problems of ontological modelling; the study of the methods of semantic analysis of natural language; the study of machine learning methods and algorithms for solving applied problems; as well as the rapidly developing research of scale-free networks and the study oftheir assortativity.
The questions of the examination board members and following discussions on some presentations were looking like it is the scientific conference discussion. It proves the fact all thesis subjects are modern and very relevant.
We congratulate our new Masters and wish them good luck!
Distance learning is becoming an integral part of our professional life. Today we had the first day of defences of the master students at the Artificial Intelligence Department. Our students studied under the educational and scientific program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” (speciality 122 – Computer Science).
It was interesting, and first of all, for the students themselves. The defences happened online! The main challenge was to meet the allotted time and report the basics of student’s work. Perhaps this was not so easy, while the reaction of the board members to the report is not immediately visible. But, such a remote mode of students defence did not bother them at all, needed to mention. They very confidently defended themselves and answered questions from the examination board. Perhaps because students have defended their Master’s thesis for today are the best of the best, real stars. Or probably because all of them already successfully work in IT companies and have experience in work and communication online.
The topics of Master’s thesis were contemporary and exciting, dedicated to deep neural networks and their application in practical problems of clustering, classification, image recognition, research of ranking methods to improve the results of search engines, thematic modelling of a corpus of natural language texts.
We congratulate our Masters with excellent defence results and wish them further creative success and professional growth!
